Villa Erato is an ancient house located in the centre of Praiano. It was build in 18th century and it has been restored in 2007 taking care at all the ancient furnitures and cotto tiles. The house is perfect for a couple, for two couples or for a small family.
Villa Erato faces the sea and the sun, from the house you will enjoy a breathtaking view on the Amalfi Coast so you will be able to see "Positano" until "Punta Campanella", than "Capri" with the well known "Faraglioni Rocks" and finally the "Li Galli Island" which was owned by the know Russian dancer Nurejev. The house has all the modern furnitures and amenities, air conditioning, plasma TV, Internet wifi, winter heating. But most important the house has a big garden all covered by olives an lemon trees from where you will relax, lying on the sun beds just drinking a fresh glass of white Falanghina wine.
The house is really well located, from the street level there is a lift and then around 75 stairs to get the house, walking through rural and fascinating tiny streets. Close to the house there are the best restaurants, wine bars, cocktail bar, the pharmacy, grocery stores, fish shop and tabacchi shop. To get the closest beach which is called "La Gavitella" there are 400 stairs, where you will find restaurants and beach resorts. The closest bus stop is 5 minutes far from the house so the car is not necessary. If you decide to come with a car you will be able to park for free on the street within 1 km or park in a private garage just next to the house for 10 € per day but you need to ask before your arrival the check the availability.
Entering in the living room you will understand immediately that you are in an authentic house, where you could feel as to be in your own. The furniture are not basic and neutral but rather elegant and refined. There is a table which can accommodate six person, a sofa and an armchair from where you will be able to watch television or just connect your personal computer at internet thanks to the internet wifi. There is also a small library with books in english and italian. So if you forget your one, almost surely you will find one for your journey in Praiano.
